The quality, types and number of arts opportunities in the state, and the organizations or venues that offer them, increases.Interviews and personal observation of activities.

Measurable Outcome(s)

The Stan Holmaas Memorial Park open house drew an audience exceeding 100 people. Some whom traveled 10 hours to attend, view the sculpture and signage, and participate in its dedication. The addition of the artwork exposed a caliber of artistry to families and visitors within our community that has not been previously accessible. We have received countless comments regarding the likeness of the bronze sculpture to its muse, as well as the importance of honoring the legacy of community trailblazers through such a display.
